Last week, we got a lesson in making one of our favorite pasta sauces: the almighty pesto. Thanks to Riviera Focacceria Italiana in Midtown, we now know what it takes to create this delicious basil-y goodness. It took us a lot of trial and error (emphasis on error), though.
While it may seem simple — just mix basil, pine nuts, olive oil and cheese with a mortar and pestle — there’s a little more to do it than that. Here’s what we learned.
When we heard that Apeiro was opening in Midtown Miami, we were ecstatic. We had heard amazing things about the one in Delray Beach, and we were very much looking forward to trying out their progressive Mediterranean cuisine closer to home. The time finally came for Apeiro to open, and our first visit was… meh.
The service was off, the food was off and the experience was nothing like the awesomeness we had read in the Yelp reviews of the Delray outpost. We swore we’d never go back.
Well, that boycott was short lived. A media invitation showed up in our inbox, and we decided to give the place another chance. Big changes occurred since our visit last year — including a new chef — and we’re happy to report we’re on great terms with Apeiro Midtown Miami 2.0.
Art Wynwood made its return to Miami this past holiday weekend, drawing thousands of collectors, art enthusiasts and other attendees to the Wynwood/Midtown Miami areas for a fantastic experience. More than 70 galleries and 600 artists participated in the annual event, which celebrated its fifth year and showcased modern, avant-garde and emerging works of art.
It’s that time of the year again: Art Basel. Thousands of people are descending upon Miami Beach, Midtown and other local neighborhoods to admire amazing art, party all day and night long, and make the most of South Florida’s warm weather.
One of our favorite annual events is Art Miami, the popular art fair in Midtown that has attracted over 80,000 visitors each year, including collectors, museum professionals and art fans. At the event, 125 galleries showcase their work, so there’s plenty to see and do; this is Art Miami’s 26th edition, and it’s widely considered one of the most important shows in the U.S. contemporary art market.
